Upper Keys Rotary Club Scholarships
The Upper Keys Rotary Club holds The Gigantic Nautical Flea Market once a year. We do this to raise money for scholarships, and we raise roughly $200,000 annually. The scholarships you are applying for are available because 300 plus Rotarians and volunteers came together to make this event successful. Raising this much money is a lot of work!
Three important notes: 1. The application deadline for Graduating High School students and Returning students already in college is midnight April 14. There are no exceptions! 2. There is a VIDEO available to help you complete the application. The video is aimed at Graduating High School students, but it is generally useful to all applicants. The video is available at the Upper Keys Rotary Website <— Click on that. Hint: The biggest challenge for Graduating High School students seems to be the letters of recommendation.
3. GRADUATING CSHS STUDENTS: In a normal year we would ask each CSHS Graduating student applying for a scholarship from the Upper Keys Rotary to come in for an interview in front of a committee of Rotarians. Since we can’t do that group interview this year, we need to ask you to do a little more online. We ask you to create a short video on your phone or other device. In this video you will introduce yourself and respond to some prompts. After you sign and complete this application, you will receive a confirmation email with the list of prompts and a private upload link to a Google Drive. When you complete the video, just copy/paste or drag and drop into that private folder. If you could get that video done for us within 7 days of receiving the confirmation email, that would be very helpful.
Please attempt to follow the scholarship submission guidelines as closely as possible. This will make our job easier. Keep in mind Rotarians are all volunteers. No Rotarian is financially compensated for the time or money they put into making this happen. If you are applying for a scholarship, you will need to upload several documents in pdf format. These documents include a financial form (click on that hot link) that you will need to download and complete. Please check the specific instructions for the form that is appropriate for you. (See the categories on the top of the screen).
No matter what, you should expect to receive an email acknowledging a successful package submission. If you do not get an email, your application was NOT received.
If you CANNOT submit electronically, please call Tricia Hynes at (305) 522 – 2848
